Subject: Let's add another rod...
Unexpectedly entertaining film about turning axles opens with the most anazing motorcade you will ever see. An oviously well trained group of cyclists do incredible tricks, with three men on one cycle, breath-taking precision routines and STANDING on a motorcycle. My Gosh! These arent shriners!
Soon, the narrator comes in about the ability to turn on precision, and a fascinating history about the axle is shown, and then details about how the axle works in a car. While this may sound boring, it's told in a quite direct and entertaining way.
But it's interesting how Jem Handy obviously put something in front of a drab subject to make it more palatable. Even otherwise, this film is reccomended.
